Welcome to Wondering Wednesday. You are encouraged to use this as personal devotion and reflection. After that, you are welcome to hop on the church Facebook page or Instagram page and wonder with others.
As Jesus continues to appear to his disciples and friends, someone is missing – Thomas. He had heard the message of Jesus’ resurrection, but the experience of seeing and the offer to touch the risen Christ helped him fully believe. How different is this experience from your own? Is hearing a lesson, reading it, or completing it going to help you understand it?
There are many ways to experience the risen Christ, and we open ourselves to all the ways Christ is around us and working in the world today. This week, tangibly experience the risen Christ by putting your faith into action. Volunteer at your church or a local ministry with the poor, or reach out to someone in your community who could use a helping hand.
Pray…O God, open our eyes and move our hands to receive your peace. Help us to hear the blessing you offer in our lives so that we might reach beyond fear and feel joy. Amen.
